This is why I spent 4 HOURS shoveling snow yesterday and can barely walk today. My sweet retired neighbors (on the other side of me who are also wonderful and who also sadly have their house listed for sale) finally took pity and let me borrow their snowblower. I think they got tired of hearing me outside their dining room window grunting and groaning. There was no way I was getting the whole thing done so I just made myself some tracks. I mean c'mon... look how long that freakin' driveway is! I had to make sure I got all the way to the pavement near the bottom cuz my driveway is on an incline. If I don't get traction when I first pull in I'm screwed. Unfortunately, my street is so narrow that the big snow plow trucks can't get down it. Which explains why I hear my neighbor out front spinning his tires right now. I did manage to get to work and back home today. So that was good.
Today also marks the 1 year anniversary of the day that I accepted the open single's spot with my adoption agency. This is the day that I officially started my journey to Mia. It's crazy how much your life can change in a year. Let's hope that next year when I type this, Mia is playing quietly on the floor right next to me and I've hired some big, handsome, strapping young man to shovel this crap.
